On arrival we will start with a tea or coffee while we have a chat about how the day will run and what we will achieve by the end of the course.


We will be thorough with the theory aspect of the day and ensure that you understand everything you need to so that you can maximise the enjoyment of the practical session.  You will be itching to get started in the workshop and we are on hand to answer any questions you may have throughout the day.  


We will then explore all of the raw ingredients that we will be using, we will look in detail at the different consistencies of the ingredients and discuss how this will affect the finished bars of soap.

Emma will give a demonstration of the practical step by step process that you will have learnt about in the morning, now you will begin to see all of the stages of soap making that were discussed earlier.


Returning from lunch buzzing with ideas and inspiration, the afternoon session is dedicated to practical.  Making three batches of soap per person in the three hour session you will follow the Soapology recipe using natural ingredients but you have free reign to choose colours, essential oils and additives that you may like to use in your batches.


Whatever you have made is yours to take home on the day (if you have come by plane or train we can post your soaps out to you the next day if you prefer - postage charges apply if you are

out of the UK)
